Rhinos are always being asked if We know Everything there is to know. We respond with gentle smiles, and admit that there are probably things that We don’t know, and are unlikely to learn.
That way, if and when somebody discovers something We don’t know, however unlikely that would be, We can murmur, “Told you so.”
(The Presumption here is ‘Everything of Interest‘.)
Rhinos are fine at wading, wallowing, and dipping ourselves in Water. A fine time for one and all. Hooray and Tee Hee.
But Rhinos are keenly sensitive to our own limitations, and merriment on the High Seas is one such limitation. A lesson learned by our ancestors, and kept alive in lore and legend. Sloshing to and fro, lurching and reeling at Neptune’s Whim.
We get Queasy. Which is a nice way of saying, “No, thank you.”
It often takes a while to learn that each unexpected Item a Rhino may encounter does not demand an Insightful Evaluation from that Rhino.
Most of the time, our energies are better spent casing the fields for a radish, or whatever. A case of Minding Our Own Business.
With time, We may even get over ourselves.
So here is ‘Your Inner Rhino’, getting back into Gear, after some mild revelry.
We are always pleased to hear from our Readers, so Thank You All.
Yabba Dabba Doo.
Sisyphus was doomed to roll a rock up a hill, and when he let it go, down it rolled, damning him to repeat his effort, forever.
Rhinos are familiar with such Procedures; We see that our Course of Action does not work, and never will, but do We find another response? Sadly, seldom.
Does this make sense? No. Who supposed it might?
Curiosity is an omnipresent force which Rhinos must confront, and often. We are interested in Why things are this way or that, right from the get-go.
Naturally, We never get a thoroughly satisfactory answer, so you might think We’d drop the whole business.
But Why would We stop asking Why?
This is a Reminder that today is National Cake Day! Rhino Observations and Insights seem unnecessary, since Everybody knows how to celebrate such a momentous occasion.
With or without a fork.
